Canon Professional Imaging Production Equipment Request and Support

Canon USA, Inc. ("Canon USA") supports the professional imaging industry through numerous events, workshops and programs each year. In connection with this support, Canon USA's Professional Engineering and Solutions Division offers a program (the "Program") through which a limited number of select Canon products are loaned and/or donated for use by photographers and cinematographers for select projects. The guidelines and FAQ's for the Program are set forth below. Please read these guidelines and FAQ's fully before submitting your request related to the Program.

General Guidelines:
  • This Program is targeted to professional organizations only. We are unable to support individual photographic or cinematic projects, nor do we support "prosumer" or consumer photographic events or projects.
  • Requests will be evaluated on an individual basis. We have a limited amount of equipment available, so not all qualified requests can be supported. Canon USA's decision regarding a request is made in its sole, non-reviewable discretion and is final.
  • Requests need to be submitted 4-6 months prior to the date of the event or shoot in order to ensure equipment availability. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, please allow 2-4 weeks for a response once you have submitted your request.

While we are unable to fulfill the many requests received from schools across the country, Canon USA's growing commitment to education allows us to offer special pricing to K-12 and higher learning institutions on imaging products that will help enhance the learning process. Please visit for more information.

We offer free and fee-based training to the imaging community through the Canon Digital Learning Center and Canon Live Learning. Learn more about our education and training programs at
